    When, indeed, will our learning environments reflect the needs of our students and the current (even future?) technological tools? Step-by-step, I hope!

    Very powerful. Exactly my thoughts, “if you can’t beat them, join them.” Great ideas, especially the use of cell phones. “Who’da thunk?” Can’t wait to share this with my team.

    Thank you for all of your kind comments! It’s exciting to see that there are so many educators out there that actually “get it”.

    At times it feels like an up-hill battle to convince some teachers that they would actually teach better by simply using the technology that their students already know how to use.

    For your information, there is a “full quality” version of the presentation available on our site:

    Onward and upward,

    Just the VOLUME of comments so soon on this post should tell us all point blank how effective MEDIA RICH learning really is!!! No offense Steve, because your text-based posts are always awesome:), but how many of us felt COMPELLED to respond to this post much quicker than usual? Asks yourselves- Why? Because of the Mode of Transmission of the Content! With great deference to Hall’s blog… MEDIA MATTERS!! As teachers, we all need to get out of Our comfort zone & try our Student’s world on for size:)- We might actually find out that we like it (AND we might actually engage more of our students-WOW)!

    Wow! I will share this at my next English Department Meeting and ask the Principal to share it with the High School. It provides excellent data for educators !

    I definitely plan to share this with our administration who in turn will hopefully share it with the staff. We have some teachers using the computer for emails, little else on one end of the spectrum and others who are becoming involved in podcasting. Perhaps this short little piece of information so well presented will move someone toward the high user end. Thank you for the linkage.

    My Kindergarten students are using PowerPoint to do animations, similar to claymation. We watch a us video and then interpret it via our PPP animations. They love it. I would love to hear from someone who is doing the same.
